{December} Monthly Meal Plan

Happy Wednesday, friends! I sure hope your week is going great! We had a ton of snow on Friday {when I say a ton, I mean six inches - but that's more than our area ever gets!}... My work closed early on Friday due to snow - and we closed a little early yesterday because of the ice. The roads are pretty slick! Other than that, my week is pretty average.

I thought I'd pop in today and share our monthly meal plan with you. I haven't shared a monthly meal plan in a while, but we are still doing monthly planning and shopping for the most part.

Alrighty - let's get to this month's meal plan. Ready, friends?

There we have it - this month's meal plan! Time to keep it real for a second... I've been really good about creating a monthly meal plan, but I've been really not so good at keeping to the monthly meal plan. We've been eating a lot of the same, easy meals each week... When I started working, my schedule was a little overwhelming. Caleb picked up the slack and helped with cooking and cleaning. I'm thankful for that, but I feel that it's my responsibility to take care of the cooking and cleaning, ya know? Anyway. My December work schedule is evening out a little bit, so I'm working on getting into the right routine with cooking, cleaning, and organizing. My goal is to find the right routine this month so I can start the new year off on the right foot! I'll be focusing on my homekeeping binder, planner, and daily routine over the next few weeks - and when I find something that works, I hope to share some tips {and maybe some printables} here!

Well, that's enough rambling for me today... If you're interested in my free monthly and weekly meal planning printables, they're still available here. Hope these are a help. If you like them, would you mind sharing them??

Have a great Wednesday! Until next time...
